If there was a drug that could add years to your life, decrease your risk of age-related illness, help you relax during the day, sleep better at night, double your chances of avoiding drug/alcohol addiction, and lower your cholesterol, all with zero side-effects, would you take it?

Having purpose in your life just may be the cure for fatigue.
